White House Announces May State Dinner For Mexico

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will hold a state dinner for Mexican President Felipe Calderon on May 19.

It will be the second such affair for the Obama administration. The Obamas' first state dinner, held in November for India's prime minister, was marred by at least three people who attended despite not having received formal invitations.

First lady Michelle Obama is scheduled to visit her Mexican counterpart, Margarita Zavala, next month.

The president has met twice with Calderon in Mexico.
